A very spectacular project with wood interior design, was realised for the law School of Paris bar “l’École de Formation au Barreau de Paris”.
Made from laminated elements, using very high quality spruce, the building has the effect of motion and gives a warm atmosphere.
Imagined by the architecture agency X-TU of Paris, the French Pavilion, it was manufactured in our workshops, out of glued laminate timber (wood from Franche-Comté).
This was a major challenge: the brief was to manufacture a pre-fabricated that could be both assembled and disassembled with concealed joints. It was a complicated build with seismic calculations! The brief also asked for a 1 hour fire resistance for the structure as well as the flooring which was achieved by using our fireproof flooring DALFEU®.
The design included our RÉSIX® system, bonding in metal rods and connections overall there were more than 2000 curved and straight pieces, a total volume of 1500m3 of wood. All of which could be assembled in a very short time.
One of Simonin’s greatest moments. A groundbreaking design by our team that delivered what was required for an exceptional event...
Since 1967, Simonin has specialised in the design and manufacture of glued laminated timber structures and the manufacture of wooden components for construction. Our experience allows us constantly innovate and to develop new solutions for the most complex projects.
